Since the ancient civilisations of Babylon and Ancient Greece, weather patterns and the dramatic phenomena that coincide with them have fascinated people all over the world; And Now, The Weather... looks at the history of the weather forecast, including the very earliest attempts at meteorology, as well as the facts, folklore, phrases and fantastic occurrences ascribed to the weather.
